I am new to The Craft and need information about an altar. Do I need one to be a Wiccan? If so, how do I make/build/purchase one? I am interested in joining a convent. I live in Louisville, Kentucky and need information. Also, what is The Book of Shadows?

An altar is a place where you sit and do spellwork or commune with the Gods. You do not need one right away to begin practicing. As to how to make or build one, it is simply a table top or tree stump where you place candles, water, cup, cakes, spellwork. It is used as a work table so your hands are free. It is personal to you and you alone. As for finding a coven try looking at your local metaphysical bookstore or look under covens at www.witchvox.com. A Book of Shadows is a book that you place all of your spellwork notes and jounal information on the craft.
